The Sigma 300mm f/2.8 EX DG HSM lens is a high grade long telephoto lens offering a fast f/2.8 maximum Aperture, allowing for faster shutter speeds in lower light conditions.
This lens is a Sigma DG format lens making it suitable for both 35mm and APS-C format digital SLRs. Sigma’s newly developed multi layer lens coating has been used here to drastically reduce flare and ghosting, as it has been specially developed for digital SLR cameras. The optical arrangement also includes two ELD (Extraordinary Low Dispersion) lens elements to drastically reduce chromatic aberration and improve overall sharpness.
Focusing is actuated using a HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor) which is almost silent and super fast. This system is radically different from traditional motor designs and allows full time manual focus override when the need arises. It is an inner focus system which makes for greater accuracy and efficiency. In addition there is a 46mm drop-in rear filter inside of which filters can be rotated.

This lens uses two ELD glass elements reduce chromatic aberration to a minimum and also ensure sharp, quality images of high contrast.
It also features a drop-in 46mm filter holder in the rear part of the lens barrel, which can be rotated to facilitate the use of filters, including a polarizing filter.
HSM (Hyper Sonic Motor)
The HSM models (Sigma, Nikon and Canon mounts) provide fast, silent AF function as well as full- time manual focus override.
Inner Focusing System
It also incorporates inner focusing system, which enables responsive and fast auto focus speed. The overall length of the lens does not change during focusing, ensuring convenient handling and ease of use.
Optional APO Tele-Converter EX
Simply adding an APO teleconverter (optional extra), means that this lens can be used as a 420mm F4 AF ultra-telephoto lens with a 1.4X EX teleconverter, or a 600mm F5.6 AF ultra-telephoto lens with a 2X teleconverter.
